As a designer for Craftsy, I've known changes were coming. My experience with the new Craftsy has been horrible – Please contact Craftsy directly for customer service inquiries. The FAQs say that if you purchased “Forever” classes, Craftsy is giving you a free Premium Membership until your Forever classes migrate to your account: “How will I access the classes I have purchased on the new Craftsy website? I am looking forward to having an access to classes! As of today, January 8, 2019, Craftsy has become Bluprint. My streaming membership carried over to the new service, and I’m happy to report it’s all working beautifully. e.g. I was entitled to 12 free forever classes when I signed up for a yearly membership with them. TN Marketing is working on creating social media accounts for Craftsy. I have sent numerous emails demanding a refund for the $214.00 they charged me. Getting those straightened out is going to take a little more time. I can’t phone as I am in the U.K. have sent an email but not even an acknowledgement that they got it let alone a reply. If you go to the old craftsy address, you will be automatically redirected to mybluprint.com. I do appear to have access to the classes, but it is so difficult to find what you want, without trawling through a lot of pages to end up back at the home page. They sure are: https://www.yarn.com/categories/cloudborn-yarn They must have bought the inventory. You get to keep your shop! Craftsy - Bluprint - Craftsy again - please sort yourselves out. I was really hopingthat Craftsy would bring back pattern downloads. These cookies will be stored in your browser only with your consent. Are you with Craftsy? However, I am a compulsive link-follower: There is definitely a link between the new branding of Craftsy-to-Bluprint and the NBCUniversal company, which is a branch of the Comcast Corporation. I wouldn’t expect them to do it for free, like the original Craftsy did, but it would be nice if they allowed designers to sell, plus they could take a cut of the sales. Required fields are marked *. #bluprint #craftsy #soseweeasy Then, things seem to turn around on July 1 when TN Marketing, a niche video-on-demand company based in Minneapolis, bought the Craftsy assets, promising to preserve them for users. Thank you so much that you are coming back!!! They seem to be planning to carry on the Craftsy tradition of near-constant special offers and deals, though. forever classes from when I signed up with them last year. We are not affiliated with Craftsy and can’t help you. I have been sweating bullet’s since I placed my order. From Craftsy: Good news, Larissa, you're a top designer! I really don’t know why they’ve changed the name. There will be both a subscription and an a la carte model. hmmmm not recalling any mention of courses under negation that you may not have — only recalling the company promising that your classes would be back, and they do not know how to treat their instructors justly, and apparently they do not know how to treat their customers honestly — then what would you call them. They offered me a subscription for $2.49 regularly 79.99 it says but no thanks. An Dien Madden, An Dien, don’t worry yet. I had no problem with it, personally, because I kept purchasing classes under Craftsy to review for this page, and it got a lot more expensive to buy one at a time! Best regards And tried various new PW’s but to no avail. Her patterns and tutorials are always professional, concise and very well written. Then something else happened. I grew up in Wayzata. In addition, you can’t access blueprint anymore either. Now I have not been able to get back into My Account due to various software problems; having COVID19 did not help either.Finally was able to deal with this again and spoke with ‘Joan’ in Customer Service just prior to Christmas #877-329-9375.

Patterns for the people, by the people this on going project compiles patterns shared by the most talented designers out there for you to use freely in your designs. Where or who do I contact now? I don’t know if it will help you, but there’s this $3 year subscription with a really helpful auto-renew to &80 (ahem). I think it is a relief for many people who really feared that Craftsy/Bluprint was just disappearing for good. Nothing changed there but the login page. I purchased them with the promise of lifetime access! I questioned it with PayPal but they say it was authorised. Although crafts have never been bigger than during the coronavirus pandemic, Denver's homegrown crafts conglomerate has unraveled. The accounts that were transferred to TN Marketing from BluPrint were for customers who had an active membership or who had purchased classes. Here’s the Forever Shopper Sewing Pattern, which you can download below. When I try to login to Craftsy, I only get an error screen. The blurb said I can cancel auto renew on line but there is nowhere on my account to do this or even cancel altogether. So here I am still unable to get back in & this phone number is not getting me through to anyone. Many crafters and craft instructors were saddened to learn in late May that NBCUniversal had decided to shut down Bluprint, the video-on-demand site originally called Craftsy they’d purchased and rebranded three years prior. You just have to remember how to spell “bluprint.” (My spell-checker is really offended by that misspelling.). The new owners of Craftsy launched their website on September 1, but let all subscribers know then (through emails) that our “forever classes” wouldn’t be available for a couple of months. I asked to speak to a supervisor, was put on hold for 22 min, then disconnected – yeah right! It was free, now you want a monthly fee for some instructional video I bought. What happened to my patterns I purchased. Oh interesting! His name is Joe…He told me that he would send another request for the refund…He told me that it would take 7 to 14 days before it would be done.

You’re still a member. Just before Christmas. I belong to other websites have never had this problem requests are made to renew never have had money STOLEN from my PayPal account.

I would really like to be able to access all the classes I bought, and I don’t feel I should have to pay for those again, not even to stream them! Your purchased classes will not be available at launch, but we are working hard to have your classes added to your account. I have emailed them to have my password reset, and they are now telling me there is no such account, no email registered, I find it so funny when I have been with them for years and have so many patterns, classes and videos saved – however after going over and over with them, they just dropped me with no reply to my last email. I’m very upset with them and will no longer be a part of it. Oh, yeah! By continuing to use this site you consent to our use of cookies.

Well, now that I know that Craftsy is going to put COMMERCIALS in the lessons people are paying for, I know I won’t be subscribing. I’ve been a Premium Member since the CraftsyUnlimited option. Who is Abby Glassenberg. I am not able to log into Craftsy have selected “forgot password” and am not receiving the email to reset. They wanted to buy my Minion Hat Pattern and re-publish it! Thank you, Worried I can’t cancel now. They may offer a limited selection of notions and some kits as well. I have not had time to check the sewing or cooking class categories yet. Also, just so people are aware, I had cancelled my subscription on Bluprint after they notified us of it closing, however, my credit card info has transferred to the new site with a message saying I will be automatically renewed when my membership expires. If you live in the Minneapolis area, check out SR Harris in Brooklyn Park- they have a huge amount of the kits and fat quarter bundles from Craftsy. Craftsy is advertising on FB now, maybe try to reach them directly, again? Just type Craftsy.com into your web browser and you’ll find most of your questions answered. Bluprint is referring to them as “forever classes.” Go to mybluprint.com and login. This website (craftstindustryalliance) is not affiliated with Craftsy. Thank you! I have purchased over 100 classes from the old Craftsy. This is sort of a bummer. Its a scam site. The supervisor there didn’t even know what a class action suit was. It’s also called Bluprint now, so you’ll need to download the new app. You should be able to use your old Craftsy info for that, or go through the usual “lost password” rigamarole. I have used 7 of these free forever class credits but am still owed 5 free forever classes from them which I hadn’t picked out before they closed down with virtually no warning. In fact, the affiliate manager who worked at Craftsy and Bluprint is now working at TN Marketing and will be managing the program. Log in, then go to the upper right corner where it always was to look at the pull down menu for your account. I no longer have a job and cannot afford this. TN Marketing is not planning to have a pattern marketplace at all, at least not at launch, citing the technical challenges involved in setting something like this up. Most of the quilting classes I purchased are not available at this time on the new website. I’m the co-founder of this site, Craft Industry Alliance. Today's live video is a discussion among fellow makers about the latest updates regarding the closure of Bluprint. After Craftsy became Bluprint, the marketplace was drastically cut back so that only a very few patterns remained. Instead, they’re looking at offering more classes on DVD. The new Craftsy.com will look familiar to most users. Waiting for an answer, I will see what they will come up with now. Seriously? The new site looks to have a fairly simple homepage, with plenty of the familiar Craftsy orange and a clean design. I am grateful for all the comments here. I’m hoping the new company fixes the dead free pattern links/removes the articles with all the free pattern lists so they’re not even on site for people to realize they’re missing, and/or builds new pattern lists, fast. Subscriptions will be available monthly for $7.99 and annually for $79.99 and individual courses will be $39.99 with frequent discounts down to $29.99 and $19.99.
